Lavender Harvester MKL 3R for trailer

Lavender Harvester MKL 3R for trailer

MKL 3R  is a harvester designed to cut lavender by means of one-side header mounted to the tractor and transporting band moving the cut lavender from the header to the hitched trailer.

A special mechanical unit lifts up the plants directly from the ground and the wave-shaped rubber band attracts them to the cutting device. Being cut, they are taken up by a moving transporter band which carries them to the trailer at the rear part of the tractor.

MKL 3R is driven by hydraulics. The steering is manual through a joystick and 12V electrical power is activating the electromagnetic distributor.
